sented only by an early example by Harpignies. Fortunately,
the Museum collection includes good examples by most of the
men of importance who are thus omitted, and the pictures shown
in Galleries VI and VII supplement to a remarkable extent the
French exhibit from Paris.
Perhaps the best-known paintings included are "The Bal-
cony," by Manet, and "The Wedding Guests," by Raffaeli,
both of which have been illustrated frequently and are striking
examples of the work of their creators. The large water-color
portrait of Legros by Besnard is also of the greatest importance.
Beginning with the Neo-classicists, one can follow the chan-
ging development through the various schools leading to the
Impressionists and to Cezanne, who is represented by a charm-
ing landscape in which one begins to see the influence which the
followers of Cezanne developed into the newer movements of
many names, which have followed one another so rapidly in
the last few years.
Through the generosity of Mr. Salmon P. Halle, the Museum
is enabled to show for a few weeks in Gallery XI the complete
set of 51 lithographs of English Munitions Works by Joseph
Pennell, which represent one of the most notable artistic con-
tributions brought forth by the great war. The visitor cannot
fail to be impressed with the beauty and variety represented by
these studies of the great and orderly productive side of the war.
In striking contrast to the Pennell lithographs are the poetic
productions of Fantin-Latour shown in the Print Room. These
are owned by Mr. Charles L. Freer, who once more expresses
his friendly interest by lending this valuable collection. Full of
charm, matchless in their interpretative beauty, they show the
wonderful extent to which a great artist can express in carefully
manipulated tones of black and white the feeling and values of
color. It will be interesting and instructive to study carefully
the lithograph of Tannhauser— No. 27 on the west wall of the
Print Room— and then go to Gallery VI and compare it with
the oil-painting of the same subject presented to the Museum
by Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Wade.
